ReSource is starting to provide a new service of thermal imaging using drones. We can do maps of the area with thermal pictures, and regular pictures and videos. Thermal imaging can be used for inspection of roofs, hot water pipes, storage leakage, surveying of geothermal areas and much more! Have a look at some example here and don´t hesitate to contact us for more information or if you would like a survey.
Biogas potential tests are the most relevant tests today to predict biogas production from biomass. They are often done using expensive equipment such as pressure sensors or small-scale gas flow meter. In order to reduce costs and be able to have a higher number of replicates, it is necessary to provide research facilities with lower cost solutions without compromising precision of the measurements.
The environmental engineering and services company, ReSource International based in Reykjavik, Iceland has developed an open-source system based on classical water displacement measurement. The system called #Bioklik is based on the open-source Arduino board and operates automatically to measure a low flow of gas from fermentation processes. The #Bioklik system can also be used to monitor any other kind of fermentation process operated at laboratory scale with a continuous flow of gas such as brewing for example.
Are you interested in this project?
We would like to gather interest from the community to help us determine the potential of this project and to determine who would be interested in ordering at least the Arduino shield or the full unit.
ReSource International is installing a 325 l fully-automatized fish tank equipped with the smart monitoring system for Coca-Cola European Partners Ísland. For the ecosystem in the tank, we will use processed wastewater as a continuous proof it can be safely released back to the environment.
ReSource International is operating CCEP wastewater treatment plant in Reykjavík, which is the most advanced cleaning system in the country.
Staff at ReSource International received a training in plastic welding at the specialized company SET ehf. in Selfoss. Plastic welding is largely used in the field of landfill gas collection and water and wastewater transportation. Some ground learning for all the team is a plus and emphasizes our willing to integrate the whole chain from design to installation to operation and maintenance.
Börkur Smári Kristinsson our master student from the technical university of Zurich (ETH) received the visit of Morgunblaðið journalist. The purpose of the visit was to show a new “washing machine” for mixed solid waste that produces methane.
His task aims at the investigation of the percolation techniques to use in the new biogas station and composting of MSW which should be up and running in 2018 at SORPA. The future plant decided by SORPA will be using the technology developed by Aikan.
The video is in Icelandic.
Technology is bringing constantly new ways of monitoring our environment and help human activities to get more efficient and precise.
In addition of our regular drone surveying that allows us to get precise 2D and 3D mapping of land and industrial sites, ReSource International is starting to use an infrared camera (NDVI) in order to evaluate the health of vegetation. Using infrared cameras and with special image processing, it is possible to evaluate quantitatively for a site where the vegetation growth is the happening or not.
Applications for this type of surveying are wide. NDVI mapping can be used for agriculture, land conservation, gold course, landscaping, etc. One of our main wishes is to use this technology in order to assess tourism impact on the ground for touristic sites using in parallel the classical aerial mapping and analyzing land deterioration.
Below is an example of regular aerial mapping, and two sorts of image treatment for NDVI mapping for the same area.
NDVI: Black is no vegetation at all. Red is growing vegetation. Green and yellow is low vegetation.
NDVI 2: Red is no vegetation at all or little growth. Green and yellow is vegetation.
In both NDVI pictures, it is possible to see clearly where people have been walking on the vegetation and therefore spot possible improvements. If you are interested in environmental surveying, check our Vegetation Monitoring page or contact us.

ReSource International has joined FESTA/CSR Iceland. Festa- Icelandic Center for Corporate Social Responsibility is a non-profit organization that works nationally with companies and organizations to increase their corporate social responsibility. Festa introduces best practices in implementing a CSR policy, promotes discussion about CSR, offers a network for companies to share and learn from each other and encourages academia to teach and research CSR. It was founded in 2011 by six companies and today it consists of 80 members from various parts of the Icelandic economy, ranging from NGO´s to large corporations.
ReSource International is one of the most recent members of Festa. By joining this platform, RSI wants to offer services to companies within Festa and beyond by providing GHG inventories and assistance with CSR strategy planning and reporting, as well as participating in the constant dialogue of CSR.
